Scottish Craft Activities For Kids

There are lots of reasons to celebrate with some Scottish-themed craft ideas - maybe it is for St. Andrew's Day, which falls on 30th November each year. Or maybe for Burn's Night, when Scots celebrate Scotland's national poet Robbie Burns on 25th January or perhaps to mark the Scottish New Year celebration of Hogmanay.

This collection of Scottish-themed crafts are a lovely way to make your own DIY decorations for a Scottish celebration or for a party so here is a collection of Scotland themed crafts that are easy and fun for children to make. There are lots of Scottish Craft Ideas for children to make, some easy, some are a little more complicated, but there is something for every age.




They feature many of the symbols of Scotland; the national animal is the Unicorn, the national flower the prickly Thistle. A hint of Tartan and a view of Nessie the fabled Loch Ness Monster. And of course the symbol of Scottish music, the bagpipes. Plus we've got our own Scottish themed printable colouring pictures and wordsearch.

Scottish DIY Craft Ideas For Kids

Scottish DIY Craft Ideas

The thistle is the symbol of Scotland, so let's start with a couple of cute thistle crafts.

This craft just requires card and a little bit of thread to make a lovely thistle design.

This felt thistle requires a little bit of basic sewing skills, but you could glue the button and purple thread on too.

Another card thistle craft - this one would work really well as a greetings card if you stuck it on a card blank.

The tartan kilt is Scotland's national dress, so this kilt craft made from a scrap of tartan fabric is a very clever idea.

For this craft idea you can create your very own tartan design, in all your favourite colours.

This is wonderfully clever and very cute - a Highland cow to make. Wouldn't this make a super brooch to wear at your favourite Scottish celebration?

This is a brilliant no-bake idea. Decorate ready made Scottish shortbread - the triangular type called Petticoat Tails - with icing to make a tartan patterned kilt biscuit. Genius.

This is amazing, a set of bagpipes made from card and paper. And silent too. Result.

These origami scottie dogs are massively cute and easy to make.

This 3D scottie dog is a bit more involved to make, but is very impressive.

Does Nessie exist? Who knows, but this felt Loch Ness Monster is just adorable and is a lovely sewing project for little crafters.
